look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tall clear glass. Has a hazy, glowing goldenrod color. Fluffy finger tall head, lots of lacing.

Very floral and citrusy smell, mostly consisting of orange and tangerine. Nice dancing subtle grassy scent as well. Slight lemon peel scent and earthy wheat. Moderate carbonation.

Lemongrass and orange peel upfront. Crisp crackers, tangerine, lime, and even gumball in the taste and aftertaste as well for a sweet candy flavor. Altogether mixed with a wheat malt that balances it all out.

Light-bodied, but well-composed. Feel smooth and creamy.

Bottle dated 04/09/18 into a tumbler.

Pours golden with subtle haze, 1 finger of variable density white head with good retention and left ringed lacing.

Nose is bright, floral and citrus, with just the subtlest hints of grassyness.

Taste pops more than the nose, and follows it well. Finishes with subtle bitterness and astrigency, which linger pleasantly on the palate.

Lighter bodied with medium carbonation, dances on the tongue without too much acidity/tingling, bright clean finish.

Wow, thought Modern Times Fortunate Island was by 'unicorn' sessionable wheat pale....until I met this. Both are great, and I 'tip my hat' to MT for the can format, but I think I like Gumballhead just a smidgeon better. Bravo!

12oz bottled 4/9/18 (12 days ago) poured into a snifter at fridge temp, no ABV listed on label. The beer pours the slightest bit hazy, orange amber in color with off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring, but leaves nice lacing. The aroma is bright with citrus, mostly orange. The taste is tangy wheat malt with a bit of caramel and big bitterness jumping in on the finish. There is a little citrus in the flavor as well. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated with a sharpness that I can't place and mostly dry in the finish. Overall, very good. Awesome summer beer and fresh as well.
